Clearly in forming the notion of community there is a sense of how strongly related our interests are and how closely we identify with one another and the group as a whole.
Any procedure that requires strong manual intervention on the part of either party is never going to be effective for wide spread use. Is webring usage still growing?
It is my belief that people online, as in daily life, naturally want to form communities and that, where they do not/can not, it is because of a failure of available tools to help them. Therefore any tool that seeks to address this problem must be:
- as invisible as possible
- capable of producing relevant results in a timely fashion
The analysis of common links whilst interesting unfortunately does not address the central problem of finding your community since, if you are already linking to the same sites, it is quite likely that you are already homing in on the community. This may be just telling you what you already know!
